Jenas calls for Pochettino to drop Lloris

Could loris be on his way out of Spurs?

Mauricio Pochettino should drop Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, according to Jermaine Jenas.

Lloris has been guilty of mistakes this season and his error led to Liverpool scoring a late winner against Spurs at Anfield on Sunday.

And pundit Jenas believes manager Pochettino should now axe the French World Cup winner and turn to Paulo Gazzaniga, who has impressed when given a chance.

Speaking on Match of the Day 2, former Spurs and England midfielder Jenas said: “I think he’s got a decision to make now, Mauricio Pochettino.

“For every last-minute penalty save, you get a Chelsea Kieran Trippier back-pass incident.

“For every first half against Borussia Dortmund away, you get that (Lloris’ mistake at Liverpool).

“Every time I watch Gazzaniga play he’s played very well. If you’re Gazzaniga now, you’re going ‘It’s time for me to get my opportunity’. And I think he should do.

“I think Lloris has had a couple of difficult seasons – I don’t think it’s one season.

“He’s 32 years of age, he’s a World Cup winner…he should be at the peak of his powers right now.

“If anything, he looks more nervous now than when he turned up at the club.”
